The Program invites health and medical researchers and industry colleagues from the diagnostics, medtech and pharmaceutical sectors to hear the Defence Materials Technology Centre (DMTC) Program Leader for Medical Countermeasures present details of the forthcoming Round 3 of the Program.

In an interactive session Dr Felicia Pradera will outline the objectives of this high-profile Program and detail the guidelines and timeframes for applications from prospective industry and research partners under Round 3.
